The battle to re-open the Country Crossing entertainment complex will be held out of the public eye this time.

Country Crossing attorney Sam Cherry said he and members of Attorney General Luther Strange’s office want to avoid another public battle.

The two hope to agree on a process to get Country Crossing's machines into the courtroom to settle the dispute.

Cherry released a statement saying the following:

"All I can say is we are communicating and doing exactly what I hope we would have had the opportunity to do with the commander of the task force, but there was never even an acceptance of an offer to talk."

Joy Patterson from the Attorney General’s office also released a statement today.

"The attorney general does not wish to comment on the situation except to say we are working to get everyone their day in court."

Attorney General Strange has also said publicly that the recent change in administrations and end of Governor Bob Riley’s task force on illegal gambling should not be taken as a green light to re-open electronic bingo venues in the state.
